‘I am not a cheater’: Bo Nickal denies foul after Jamie Pickett’s supervisor reveals UFC 285 consequence enchantment

Bo Nickal’s promotional debut Saturday at UFC 285 was swift, however his victory will likely be formally appealed by opponent Jamie Pickett’s workforce.

Saturday, shortly after his fighter was submitted by Nickal within the first spherical at T-Cellular Area in Las Vegas, MMA supervisor LaMont Chappell, of LCA Sports activities Administration, knowledgeable MMA Junkie of a plan to file an enchantment with the Nevada Athletic Fee (NAC) to overturn the consequence to a no contest.

The premise of the enchantment revolves round a knee to the midsection by Nickal towards the fence that occurred moments earlier than a takedown that led to the end. Pickett and his workforce assume the shot was to the groin, and unlawful.

“It’s essential that like all different main sports activities (together with collegiate sports activities) replays are essential to handle truthful play,” Chappell stated in a written assertion. “It appears some of these points from judges and officers have gotten increasingly more widespread in MMA. On the finish of the day they (officers) are human; nevertheless a fighter who trains his ass off shouldn’t be penalized for errors by people who’re paid to make the most effective judgments for the integrity of the game.”

MMA Junkie requested Nickal for his response at a UFC 285 post-fight information convention, to which the previous Penn State College wrestling standout denied the strike was a foul and was puzzled by Pickett’s workforce’s enchantment proclamation.

“I hit him within the leg, within the thigh,” Nickal stated. “I had him in a nasty place alongside the wall. He wished to get off the wall and he wished the ref to cease it. If I have been to have truly hit him low, I might really feel unhealthy as a result of I don’t need to win that approach. I’m not a cheater. I’m not any person who tries to take brief cuts. If I did hit him low, I might’ve simply relaxed most likely or let the ref cease it. However I didn’t hit him low in any respect, so it’s a bizarre transfer, bro.”

Jamie Pickett’s supervisor LaMont Chappell tells me they are going to be interesting the results of the Bo Nickal combat with the NSAC, citing a low blow straight led to the takedown and end. #UFC285
